HOW TO GET THERE

How to get to the Vera campus site (Valencia)...

The Vera Campus site is located to the north of the city of Valencia in a peaceful setting that borders with traditional farmland. It consists of nearly 60 buildings arranged in an orderly manner around the Agora, which is the centre of life on campus. There are over 108,000 square metres of green spaces that house an open-air museum of sculpture.
